It’s Sunday Morning; Do You Know What Your Children Are Singing?
Tom Chantry raises some important questions:
We all need to realize that music sends a message, and music that in any way mentions God sends an especially consequential message. As a pastor, I consider it my task – along with my fellow-elder – to make certain that at least within the confines of our church our kids hear only the true gospel. But if you are a parent, you must not assume that this is someone else’s job. Perhaps there is another question you should be asking along with “What Bible story did you hear today?”
It’s almost church time; do you know what your children are singing?
